Fulham 'looking into' Aleksandar Mitrovic's alleged NYE coronavirus breaches as Palace investigate Luka Milivojevic
FULHAM are 'looking into' allegations one of their players and a Crystal Palace star broke Covid rules.
Aleksandar Mitrovic and Luka Milivojevic were filmed together on Instagram by the Fulham striker's long-term partner Kristina Janjic at a London New Year party.
In one of the Insta story videos the footage says 'Happy New Year 2021' as the Serbian pair appear to celebrate with at least seven other adults.
Then a later story posted shows Mitrovic playing football with Eagles captain Milivojevic as well as another man – who appears in the earlier video – and two children wearing this season's Fulham kits.
Milivojevic's wife Milica is tagged in the posts – and Janjic has since deleted her Instagram account to raise even further suspicion over the footballer's conduct.
Fulham confirmed: “Following reports regarding Aleksandar Mitrović breaking Tier 4 restrictions and Fulham FC Covid protocols, the Club is looking into the matter fully as it takes a breach of the rules extremely seriously.
“The player is aware of the Club’s disappointment and of the standards that are expected of him. The matter will now be dealt with internally.”
The capital is now in Tier Four as a rise in Covid-19 cases threatens to put a halt to the Prem season.
Mitrovic's Fulham had their midweek clash at Tottenham postponed after an outbreak of positive tests in Scott Parker’s squad.
The video surfaced prior to Fulham's trip to Burnley tomorrow being postponed due to more positive test results in the Cottagers squad.
A statement from Fulham read: "Following further new positive results returned from the most recent Covid-19 tests, the Club can confirm that this Sunday's away at fixture at Burnley has been postponed after discussions with the Premier League and advice from the medical teams.
"Those who tested positive are self-isolating in line with UK Government and Premier League guidance.
"The welfare of our players, staff and their families continue to be of paramount importance, and we wish those who have tested positive a safe and speedy recovery."
